Hot Pants

This is one of those drinks that sounds awful, but in reality it is quite good. I attribute this success to fresh squeezed grapefruit juice and coarse ground salt. But peppermint schnapps and tequila are not so bad together and they might seem.

The effect of drinking this cocktail over the salt and sugar rim is that this spicy and cold liquid seems almost to taste like chili pepper, not peppermint. The flavors are surprisingly complimentary with tequila.
  • 2 oz. silver tequila
  • 1/2 oz. peppermint schnapps
  • 1/2 oz. grapefruit juice
  • salt
  • sugar
Mix salt and sugar on a plate. Coat the rim of an Old Fashioned glass with grapefruit juice and dip into the sugar and salt mixture. Combine liquid ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and pour into the Old Fashioned glass.
